This paper reviews knowledge of Beringian glacial chronology, shoreline history, and paleoceanography. The Happy, Boutellier, and Duvanny Yar intervals are named as subdivisions of the lastExpand
Cenozoic History of the Bering Land Bridge: The seaway between the Pacific and Arctic basins has often been a land route between Siberia and Alaska.
Many facts of paleontology and biogeography (1, 2) indicate that the Old and New Worlds have sometimes been connected by a continuous land route that extended from Alaska across the present shallowExpand

Dated wood from Alaska and the Yukon: Implications for forest refugia in Beringia
Abstract Postulations on the existence of forest refugia in parts of Beringia during the last glacial have been, in large part, based on ambiguous evidence. Existing data on radiocarbon-dated andExpand
The Potassium-Argon Dating of Late Cenozoic Rocks in East Africa and Italy [and Comments and Reply]
A technique for the potassium-argon dating of high potassium feldspars of less than 50,000 years age is described. The technique is applied to the obtaining of high precision ages in the time-rangeExpand
Emergent Marine Record and Paleoclimate of the Last Interglaciation along the Northwest Alaskan Coast
Abstract The last interglacial high sea-level stand, the Pelukian transgression of isotope substage 5e, is recorded along the western and northern coasts of Alaska by discontinuous but clearlyExpand
Arctic Oceanic Climate in Late Cenozoic Time
Faunal and lithologic evidence is used to reconstruct paleoceanographic events over the last 4.5 million years. The inception of perennial sea-ice cover is dated at about 0.7 million years.
